Disabling guest feature on ubuntu 12

I just started using Ubuntu 12 and I have been worried about the guest(for security reasons) so I did a bit on research(can't remember the website I pulled this from exactly)

navigate to the TERMINAL and type:
gksudo gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

(password might be required.)
add the following line

allow-guest=false

save and exit file
after adding the above line you should see something similar to the following:

[SeatDefaults]
user-session=ubuntu
greeter-session=unity-greeter
allow-guest=false

finally restart lightdm by typing the following into the terminal

sudo restart lightdm
